Pamper Your Smile With General Dental Care

Good general dentistry, along with proper brushing and flossing each day, forms the cornerstone of good oral hygiene. Even though you may take good care of your teeth, routine checkups and other general dental care are essential in preventing the need for more extensive dental work. That’s why our practices offer several types of general dentistry, including:

  • Dental Cleanings and Exams – We’ll give you a thorough exam, then use our laser to clean your teeth. To make your treatment more comfortable, we can apply a topical anesthetic beforehand.
  • Gum Disease Treatment – Get your gums healthy again with a deep cleaning using scaling and root planing.
  • Custom Mouthguards – We offer custom mouthguards and appliances made in-house for several applications, including athletics, TMJ and teeth grinding treatment, and sleep apnea treatment.
  • Chronic Dry Mouth Treatment – To help you manage this condition, our team can make recommendations for speciality products such as Xylimelts.
  • Halitosis (Bad Breath) Treatment – Your dentist will try to find the cause of your bad breath, then make recommendations accordingly.

Common Questions About General Dentistry

What is general dentistry?

General dentistry includes many dental treatments that help you maintain good oral health and an attractive smile. These include dental cleanings and exams, gum disease treatment, preventive treatment like fluoride applications, and much more. Routine dental care will help keep your smile bright and free from problems.

Can I prevent cavities?

Your mouth naturally creates a film over your teeth that becomes plaque. Plaque can harden into tartar, and tartar can lead to tooth decay and gum disease. By brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing once a day, you break the film before it can become tartar. When you visit us for regular teeth cleanings, we’ll remove tartar from any spots you missed. We can also coat your teeth in fluoride to toughen your enamel and fight tooth decay.

Should I get fluoride treatment?

Sugar and bacteria in your mouth form acids that eat into your tooth enamel, causing cavities. Fluoride and other minerals strengthen your enamel and help fortify it against these kinds of attacks. If you are prone to cavities, fluoride treatments can help you avoid them. Of course, it’s also important to brush and floss every day and to cut down on sugary foods and drinks.
